After a long wait, the 5th Terminates Here Irregular Event came to London. This time, myself, Nathan Nothing and Kriegslok explored the worlds of old-school EBM, dark electro and minimal wave. Of all the IrrEv’s so far, this was the one I most wanted to become a ‘regular’, and it may well become so. But for now, this is what I played:

It’s here that we briefly broke from EBM ‘purity’ for a synthpoppy tribute to Leonard Nimoy, who passed away on the day of the event.

The 4th Terminates Here Irregular Event saw a return to both the venue (Dirty Dicks) and music style (alternative electronic) heard at IrrEv #01 (Byte Back), as well as reprising an earlier theme, namely the launch of the latest X-KiN video (I was DJing at an earlier such event in September 2012). Captain Howard also returned to the event, both of us playing tunes from our own projects as well as X-KiN, whilst the later sets were handled by Jester and Matt C.
